IPL 2022 Highlights, RCB vs PBKS Match Today: Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow hit blistering knocks as Punjab Kings registered a comprehensive 54-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Put in to bat, Punjab were off to a blistering start with Bairstow hitting a 21-ball half-century. Hasaranga halted the run-scoring flow before Livingstone produced fireworks towards the end. While Bairstow smashed four boundaries and seven sixes in his knock to start the Punjab Kings innings on an explosive note, his compatriot Livingstone then hammered five fours and four maximums, at the back end to take the Kings over the 200-run mark. In response, Bangalore managed just 155/9 in 20 overs, with Glenn Maxwell being the top-scorer (35). Kagiso Rabada picked up three wickets while Rishi Dhawan and Rahul Chahar plucked two wickets each. Arshdeep Singh and Harpreet Brar also snared one wicket each.

    "It's one of those days. A couple of those come off and it's your day. Many quality bowlers in the IPL and sometimes you've got to try and get them off their lengths (taking on Josh). It's a completely different commodity, playing with England and playing here. Stats would suggest I quite enjoy opening the batting. The bats are very good, I must admit."

    IPL 2022 Live, RCB vs PBKS: Mayank Agarwal on the win

    “We were brilliant with the bat. Wicket was holding up a bit. The way Jonny and Livi batted, was amazing. We haven't changed a lot to be honest, just about understanding few situations, understanding the wicket. Have to be adaptable and flexible which we have been, which is nice,” says Mayank.

    “Can't be too defensive with the ball. If batsman get going, it doesn't matter, the boundaries don't matter these days. Two points the most crucial thing for us. As long as the job gets done, I'm fine batting at five. Very very energetic person, very confident guy (Arshdeep). Enjoys his cricket."

    IPL Live Score: Faf du Plessis on Virat Kohli's lean patch

    “Kohli is seeing the lighter side of it, every single way that you can possibly get out, is happening to him. That's how the game works. All you can do is to keep trying hard, work hard and stay positive. He played some good shots tonight, obviously would want him to carry on. Bad patches happen to all of us, he's taken it in the right note,” says Faf on Kohli.

    “It was a good score, obviously Jonny the way he started put our bowlers under really pressure. I thought we pulled it back a bit. 200 was about par on that wicket, was a brilliant wicket.
